Re: “What to Do With a Problem Like Duane Hall

I've known Duane Hall for quite a few years in a business setting. He is a charming and somewhat flirtatious man who is quite good at what he does. His behavior has been the standard for many years, and while as women we don't always want to be flirted with, we sometimes do. A man doesn't know if we want to be flirted with unless he tries. Duane did not force himself on any of these women, he didn't harass them or pursue them with unwanted attention.

As an avowed feminist for 50 years, I believe that things have gone to far. Behavior like Duane's, which in the past we would have called a harmless flirtation, cannot be conflated with the kind of crap that Harvey Weinstein and others pulled, or the kind of sexual harassment cases which threaten women in the workplace if they don't cooperate with the overt sexual pressure from their employers.

I'm glad that Duane has not resigned. I wish that Al Franken had stood his ground and not allowed himself to be pressured out of office. As long as Donald Trump is president, the Democrats should support their good people and not throw them under the bus for minor infractions that in the end caused harm to no one.

Re: “In North Carolina, the Rich Get Richer, While the Middle Class Disappears

I'm all for raising the minimum wage, but even $15/hour will not bring back a strong middle class. The problem is the loss of quality jobs - factory jobs that paid well and provided good benefits. Somehow these must be replaced by other quality jobs which provide more opportunity and incentives for people to build careers and prosperity. There must be incentives for companies to keep factories and other businesses in the US and this must be the priority - focusing on minimum wage, I believe, obscures the bigger issue.
